Continuing on the theme of what’s turned out to be a crazy amount of dolls lately, we recently received a Mini Jewel Sparkles Lalaloopsy doll, and since we only received (and expected to receive) one, there were tears in the house!
Lalaloopsy dolls were once rag dolls who magically came to life when their very last stitch was sewn, taking on the personalities of the materials that were used to make them, so since Jewel Sparkles came to life on the 13th of March, she seemed a perfect fit for Aviya, who was born on the 13th of March.
In January this year, Lalaloopsy launched a Netflix Original Series, an animated series featuring all-new original music that brings to life the popular Lalaloopsy line of dolls.Read more: Lalaloopsy Mini Jewel Sparkles Review
It was Aviya’s birthday last week, and we accumulated quite a number of dolls as a result. Of all of them, I have a favourite: The Wissper & Peggy Starter Doll Set.
Based on the Milkshake TV show, Wissper is a 7-year old girl with the ability to talk to animals. The animals always go to Wissper for help, and by the simple expedient of saying “Sssshhhh…” she can magically transport herself to anywhere there is an animal in danger.
Along with Peggy the penguin, the Wissper and Peggy starter set comes with the panpipe she uses to enter a new world and the binoculars used to find the cheeky monkeys in the forest. Read more: Wissper & Peggy Starter Doll
To my eternal chagrin, my little Aviya is a collector. She loves collecting things – it used to be rocks, then it became Shopkins, then NumNoms, and now, LOL Surprise Dolls. It’s a good thing we have a big house with plenty of room for little things.
The other thing about this particular little girl is that she loves pass the parcel. It’s her favourite party game – she loves it so much, for Christmas I wrapped 50 little collectables in a big ball for her Christmas present. She loved it.
So, LOL Surprise Dolls are totally her cup of tea!
LOL Surprise is a big ball, wrapped in seven layers, with each layer revealing a ‘surprise’.

A few months ago my daughter was browsing Netflix for something to watch when she came across Project MC2, an action miniseries about four teenage girls who use their science know-how to be secret agents and save the day. She was engrossed in it and has watched it a dozen times since, so when I saw there were dolls to match, I was excited to get her one.
Since watching the show, she’s decided that she wants to be both a scientist and an inventor – in her spare time when she’s not being a dancer, that is – and who am I to stand in her way.
